Television Jamaica and producers of the show 18-Degrees North have a week to respond to demands from Prime Minister Andrew Holness, or face a defamation lawsuit.
Attorney representing the Prime Minister, Senior Counsel Gordon Robinson, says they sent a letter of demand to TVJ on Monday night, after the programme was aired.
Mr. Robinson says the allegations aired in the programme could be career-ending for the Prime Minister, if proven to be true.
However, he says Mr. Holness strongly denies the allegations.
Meanwhile, Mr. Robinson says the Prime Minister still intends to release his financial statements.
Mr. Holness had promised to release those statements by the end of March.
